Heading out for my weekend of slammin' salmon!

Going to catch a bunch of fish in about an hour. Setnetting and dipnetting happens for 10 days during the summer at the mouth of the Kasilof River (setnetting) and the mouth of the Kenai (dipnetting) We go to the mouth of the Kasilof.

Here are pictures from past setnetting outings.

The view of the Kenai River from my Mother-in-law's house.

Picking the fish off of the net. I'll take a better picture this year of us hauling the nets in.

Strategy meeting.

Morrigan on the beach (her cousin in the distance) when she was just 6 years old. She's so big now!

Adjusting a stake during low tide. The nets work on a pulley system using 3 stakes that you pound in while the tide is out. You can hook a 4-wheeler to the rope and haul them in and out - or use a whole bunch of kids the same way!
